Because we didn’t travel much during the pandemic, even little outings such as brunch feel like mini vacations.
So last weekend, we figured we’d actually make a short road trip to Eggsville by way of Mimosatown. Truth be told, an out-of-town friend needed a ride to a baby shower in Rockwall, so we had time to kill and decided to venture out into the local dining scene.
That’s when we remembered The Standard Service in Heath (which is borders Rockwall). Located less than two miles from Lake Ray Hubbard, the location’s perfect to start your day with brunch before heading out on a boat or walking along the shoreline. Of course, there’s plenty to do on-property while you’re there, from ping-pong and tennis to cornhole and watching live music onstage or sports on the giant outdoor screen.
Brunch can be yours every Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and features all the quality, creative things you’d expect from top-notch chef Danyele McPherson. Start things off with a potent Bloody Mary or a refreshing Mimosa, before venturing down the menu to fill your belly with calories of a more solid consistency.
Steak and eggs, Nashville hot chicken and biscuits, decadent waffles, bacon breakfast sandwiches, and McPherson’s famous Remedy burger (get it with an egg!) all make for weekend brunching bliss. Every bite we stuffed in our face was fantastic.
And best of all, it’ll get you out of Dallas for a couple hours.
